Shot #14 is the most artistic IMO, I love it! :D

What happened?
Thanks!!

From what I heard there were just 2 guys working on RusMap and the one who made the unique models for it died.
But that's just a rumour though, from this forum somewhere. I don't know if it's true, but I did read it more than once and no one contradicted it.
Sad news indeed, if true...

Milan here, back again for one last set from the Baltic region. Really busy at the moment, too exhausted to drive or post...
hopefully will be back after Easter - potentially in 2.40, looks like it's almost here. But the new SCS update is shaping up to
be awesome, hope ProMods release a patch, will suck once again having to choose between either ProMods or new SCS content for months...

Image

Woke up on a rainy day in Narva, ready for my last haul in Estonia before flying back home to Kosice to sort things out. I've been away too long.

Image

Mysteriously, a new paint job has applied itself to the cab overnight. Maybe Dan Vavra left it as a parting gift.

Image

Here we are at that place, the name of which is an obscenity in Czech. I shall not write it because I know this website is frequented by miners.

Image

Image

So here it is, that town which SCS - a Czech company - simply had to add to Estonia while ignoring other places all around it. Interesting industry and ruins.

Image

When preparing these images for upload earlier, in order to avoid writing the naughty word on the images so that when my Czech wife or children look over my shoulder they don't see an offensive word, I shortened the name to Kun.

Image

Image

It was not until I reached this point while uploading I noticed my attempt at 'clean' labelling had been somewhat self-defeating, as I'd labelled the images between said offensively-named town
and Tallinn 'Kun to Tallin'. Well, I tried at least.

Image

Image

I dunno. If I was this guy I'd move myself and the cab a little bit further down the road...

Image

Edge of Tallin... heading further west, to a drop-off point near Kaldiski.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Tallinn at last.

Image

And there's the airport. But first, a quick look round.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Well, that's it, time to go back home. I don't think I'm going to manage to post anything for a couple of weeks. But hopefully then will be back with "heavy" Henri, who is going to be touring the ProMods UK. I can hardly wait!! Thanks for looking in, hope you enjoyed!!

Czech Airlines flight OK357 to Kosice is now boarding...

Great photos! And skin on a truck H. Essers have you where? Do you work for a Russian Virtual Transport company?
Hi there - thank you!! The skin is from here: https://ets2.lt/en/?s=h.essers
It's pretty nice, isn't it? Hope it's okay to post a link?? If not, I'm really sorry!

I don't work for any virtual transport company, though doing that kind of thing might be fun.
Too busy taking pictures all the time, don't get much hauling done really :D

Cheers!
You are not the only one that isn't working for one, but then again... After what happened to me and what followed I rather stay away from TMP all together and also digital companies.

Thanks very much!

Added in 37 minutes 33 seconds:
Ooof.... back again after a couple of months away due to too much work and then trouble with my eyes. Finally returning for a couple of weeks before holiday time arrives, and what do we have here - ProMods 2.40 is out! Fantastic! And shortly after SCS released an update, and once again ProMods is not compatible, because... Germany. Well, over the last couple of months I've been playing a bit in ATS, so I guess I'll post the 5 sets I have before going on holiday. When I get back, I solemnly swear that my next posts will be from ProMods, whether they've caught up with SCS or not by then. I'm going to tour the British Isles. But for now, without further ado, here's our intrepid Dan with some sets from South California...

Image

Hey there... the last set from the good ol' US of A saw us crossing the border from Arizona into California, and here we are now with the sun rising on the way to the City of Angels...

Image

Whenever I read a reference to LA in ATS it's always from people complaining that the layout is bad. So I was looking forward to seeing what it's actually like... and expanding Dan's business there.

Image

Nice wide freeway here!

Image

In the real LA it would be twice as wide and jammed with cars, no doubt...

Image

Approaching the delivery point. It's right next to the beach and pier... how cool is that?

Image

Image

Skating and surfing, that's one side of California...

Image

Time to say bye-bye to the vanilla Peterbilt.

Image

Really impressed by this area, I must say, very detailed, interesting scenery!

Image

Let's say hi to this fine 579.

Image

That famous California sun, lighting everything up a treat.

Image

First SoCal job, for Vistaprint, down south to San Diego.

Image

Image

Image

Having finally got out of town, we hit a diversion round about Carlsbad way. Looks like someone found out the effect too many sweet soft drinks can have on one's middle regions.

Image

A glimpse of the sea.

Image

An epic glimpse...

Image

And we've reached San Diego.

Image

Image

First delivery complete! Bring them on!

Image

Picked up an Unobtanium open-cast mining harvester.

Image

Destination Yuma.

Image

Main Street USA, SoCal style.

Image

Hey, Tony!

Image

Manoevering with this could be interesting...

Well, that's the first post, liking California so far. Hope you enjoyed... : )

Cheers
